Per la prima volta gli eBooks (in inglese) hanno superato gli hardcovers nelle vendite in tutto il mondo. Lo afferma l'American Association of Publishers. " ... the American Association of Publishers' latest report indicating that adult eBooks outpaced adult hardcovers in sales for the first time ever, $282.3M to $229.6M, in the first quarter of 2012. ... The good thing about the numbers, no matter which side of the digital divide you stand on, is that both categories saw an increase from last year—up 28.1% for eBooks and 2.7% for hardcovers". litreactor.
